We've all seen them - the people driving motor vehicles who ignore the advance stop lines which are meant to give people on bicycles some chance of getting away safely at traffic lights.
In fact in Manchester you see them almost every day.
Well thanks to a recent Freedom of Information request by Tom Jeffs we now know why so many drivers feel free to ignore them...
It turns out that between 1/1/2011 and 1/1/2012 Greater Manchester Police issued no fixed penalties or summons for driving into an ASL when the lights were red. None whatsoever!
At this point one also starts to wonder if the same is true for red light running and blocking box junctions.....
And Now for the Hard Work
